Look for D-backs to trade Trumbo

Just as everyone didn't predict, Yasmany Tomas agreed to a contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks worth a reported six years and $68.5 million that includes an opt-out after four years. Tomas projects as a power-hitting left fielder with below-average defense, which suggests the D-backs will now shop Mark Trumbo, last year's acquisition who was supposed to be a power-hitting left fielder with below-average defense.

Of course, this is a different front office with Tony La Russa and general manager Dave Stewart now making the calls, so don't blame them for the ill-advised trade that brought in Trumbo with the idea that he could play left field on a regular basis. Trumbo had averaged 32 home runs in three seasons with the Angels, spending most of his time at first base, although he did start 97 games in the outfield in 2012, but few analysts saw him as a left fielder.

Anyway, his 2014 season with Arizona was pretty much a disaster, as he missed two months with a foot fracture and then hit .235/.293/.415 in the 88 games he did play with 14 home runs.

Given the reports on Tomas' defense, it seems unlikely the D-backs will want to play both Tomas and Trumbo in the outfield, which opens up the idea of trading Trumbo. Trumbo is a low-OBP guy (.298 career) but he is a good defensive first baseman and averaged 2.6 WAR per season from 2011-13. Steamer projects Trumbo with a .245/.303/.461 line and 31 home runs. His estimated salary via arbitration would be $5-6 million.

Here are five teams that could be interested:

1. Miami Marlins: Looking for an upgrade over Garrett Jones at first base, the Marlins made a pitch for Adam LaRoche but he signed with the White Sox. Trumbo fits into their budget.

2. Seattle Mariners: The Mariners need right-handed power and while they prefer an outfielder, they also need a first baseman or DH -- they ranked 20th in the majors in wOBA at first base and last in the AL at the DH position. Trumbo could play first with Logan Morrison moving to the DH position.

3. Kansas City Royals: With DH Billy Butler now with Oakland, the Royals need a replacement. Trumbo is a good fit for a team that finished last in the majors in home runs.

4. Tampa Bay Rays: The Rays have James Loney under contract for two more years, but Trumbo could be brought into to provide power for an offense that ranked last in the AL in runs. He can DH, play some first and fill in some in left field. The budget-conscious Rays just designed Sean Rodriguez for assignment and could also be looking to trade Matt Joyce, so Trumbo essentially replaces their salaries.

5. Texas Rangers: The Rangers received terrible production from both first base and DH. Prince Fielder's return should help at one of those spots, but that still leaves ... Mitch Moreland? He's coming off a two-homer, injury-plagued season and it may be time for the Rangers to punt on him.

Trumbo shouldn't be too expensive to acquire, with the D-backs probably looking for pitching prospects or young, major-league ready arms. He's not a star and was overrated during his Angels days, but every team seems to be seeking right-handed power, and Trumbo provides that.
